In this wonderful fresco by Paolo Veronese, the Risen Christ is in the almond, a sign of immortality, and carries in his arms his mother's  soul, fruit of his Easter mistery, while the apostles worship the Dormitio of the Virgin, that is the glorification of her body.

Saint  Francis and Saint  Antony are at the sides of the fresco as privileged singers and witnesses of the glories of the Mother of God.
